Forum: GratefulDead Subject: i wish the best for everyone



Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year--the day on which we are closest to G‑d and to the quintessence of our own souls. It is the Day of Atonement--"For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G‑d" (Leviticus 16:30).

For nearly twenty-six hours--from several minutes before sunset on Tishrei 9 to after nightfall on Tishrei 10--we "afflict our souls": we abstain from food and drink, do not wash or anoint our bodies, do not wear leather footwear, and abstain from marital relations.

Before Yom Kippur we perform the Kaparot atonement service; we request and receive honey cake, in acknowledgement that we are all recipients in G-d's world and in prayerful hope for a sweet and abundant year; eat a festive meal; immerse in a mikvah; and give extra charity. Late afternoon we eat the pre-fast meal, following which we bless our children, light a memorial candle as well as the holiday candles, and go to the synagogue for Kol Nidrei services.

In the course of Yom Kippur we hold five prayer services: Maariv, with its solemn Kol Nidrei service, on the eve of Yom Kippur; Shacharit--the morning prayer, which includes the reading from Leviticus followed by the yizkor memorial service; Musaf, which includes a detailed account of the Yom Kippur Temple service; Minchah, which includes the reading of the Book of Jonah; and Neilah, the "closing of the gates" service at sunset. We say the Al Chet confession of sins eight times in the course of Yom Kippur, and recite Psalms every available moment.

The day is the most solemn of the year, yet an undertone of joy suffuses it: a joy that revels in the spirituality of the day and expresses the confidence that G-d will accept our repentance, forgive our sins, and seal our verdict for a year of life, health and happiness. The closing Neilah service climaxes in the resounding cries of "Hear O Israel... G-d is one." Then joy erupts in song and dance (a Chabad custom is to sing the lively "Napoleon's March"), followed by a single blast of the shofar, followed by the proclamation, "Next year in Jerusalem." We then partake of a festive after-fast meal, making the evening after Yom Kippur a Yom Tov (festival) in its own right.

Thanks for the share and the sentiments. And I agree, those that have been here a while are interconnected in some way and not everything revolves around the GD. Ignore the poopers I say.

That's cool and all, but please find yourself another forum for placating this kind of stuff, instead of on to us. I and the non-trolls who peruse here, come here for one thing and one thing only, and that is to get a fix of our favorite band. Peace

C'mon rich, let's not get into the NSFW area.

Here are some more variables to a complete life. Reading them might make you a little uncomfortable though. Enjoy.

I even took my little post down in hope earlier. Oh well.
I'm not going to say anything more here but see you at Christmas!
Unless there is a particular Atheist Day of Celebration earlier and I'll see you then.

You implied that I was uncomfortable with your original post because of the religious undertones. I was not and I mistakenly thought that the non-theist point of view might make you uncomfortable. My bad. The only feeling I get from reading someone's religious post is pity. Religion poisons everything is something I firmly believe in as well, and this is one of the few places I could come to and find no reasonable traces of it. If it keeps creeping in like this, we could lose the best of what we had to trolls and other fundies.(Not that we haven't already) I just think there are much more appropriate places for such creeds of good advice and wisdom that come from someone's faith in god. Just my opinion that's all. Now back to the music. Peace.

Not displaying any class or respect poisons things too.
A pinch of tolerance perhaps?

Or not?

Shalom, shana tovah, and have a good day atoning and a happy 5773. Instead of Napoleon's March you could try GDTRFB ... would that work? And then play a good New Year's show. See, now it's a GD post. Easy :-)

Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your holy day.

As August said - pay no attention to the folks who have not yet realized we are all connected.

For all the garbage that is sometimes present on this board,I can appreciate sharing of something meaningful even if it not my faith.

Deadheads don't just have music in common. The mystery of life is shared in all it's manifestations.
